About this Item

This 511 pages juggernaut of wisdom is presented in the pub's original and very ornate blue cloth with extensive gilt and black titling and ornamentation. We're not bragging, we would be remiss, and possibly lose our jobs) if we did not mention that both binding and text block are rock solid tight and clean, AAA all the way. Totally unbumped and unmarked, save for moderate rubs to corners and spine ends. 114 engravings in the text plus beautiful frontispiece portrait. Enough said of offerings which speak loudly for themselves. Acquire, enjoy, and share what the self-actualized author has discovered in his extensive intellectual travels to prepare this very informative writing for public edification. Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a permanent character lacking in transitory electronic renderings. As always, more photos and/or info will be sent on request. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 011015
